Rueda de Casino (Rueda, Casino Rueda, Salsa Rueda) is a particular type of round dancing of Salsa. It was developed in Havana, Cuba, sometime between the late 1940s to the early 1950s.
Pairs of dancers form a circle, with dance moves called out by one person, who is also part of the circle.
Think of the Rueda as salsa square dancing. While the main focus is on the Rueda, we will delve lightly into partner skills, as well.
